  • Hi Mike. The end-of-term purchase price of your leased vehicle is really between you and the bank that you are leasing it through. You can always try contacting an Audi dealer to see if they can help you get a better price on it, but I highly doubt that they will be able to do anything for you.

  • Hello Airkitt. The Audi A4 that you are interested in probably has a spread of around $2,300 between its full MSRP and its dealer invoice price. That means that the $1,500 and change discount that you were quoted on this car probably puts you at around $700 or so over invoice...which is a pretty good deal. Just make sure that the dealer you are working with uses Audi Financial Services' new buy rate lease money factor of .00025 to calculate your monthly payment and you are in business.

  • No problem, uthumvee. Auto Financial Services' new January buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2008 Audi A4 2.0T Sedan without quattro with 10,000 miles per year are .00025 and 56%, respectively.

    You never mentioned the selling price or MSRP of the A4 that you are interested in leasing. These are important numbers for you as a consumer to know for two reasons. First, the selling prices of leased vehicles can be negotiated, just as if you were paying cash for them. Without knowing what this vehicle's selling price is in relation to its MSRP you don't know how much of a discount you are getting on it. The second reason is that one needs the selling price and MSRP, including the destination charge, of a vehicle to calculate its lease payment. I would be more than happy to give you my opinion of this deal if you let me know what these numbers are.

  • Hi everyone, I am currently an 06 Saab Aero Convertbile owner, but since my fiancee also has a convertible, I have decided my next car will be an 08 or 09 A4, the question is which one?

    Car and Driver says the car will be same the price, however ContinentalAudi here in Naperville IL says it will be a good increase (I am assuming this is because they want the same now.)

    Any thoughts or projections on A4 pricing for 2009?

    I was offered a 2008 A4 (Stickered at 37k) with 18k miles a year and Audi Care on a 1 pay lease for $18,900. (Not sure I like that price, they told me to add an estimated 3k to that for a 2009. That is NOT including NAV, most other options though.

    They did tell me there will be the special edition at a discount, coming soon.

    I am assuming they will be doing some serious wheeling and dealing come summer/fall/winter of 2008 to liquidate current body style. Do you guys agree????
    (When Cadillac introduced the new CTS they were blowing out the old really cheap)

    Any fans of the one-pay lease? on Audis (I ask because I did very well with Saab)

    Thanks
    Brian :)

  • Wow, you're making me feel old, novatt, :) . This particular discussion is for community members to talk about leasing an Audi A4, but since you're here I'll quickly give you the info that you're interested in. In most of the country, Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24 month lease of a base 2008 A3 2.0T Sedan with 12,000 miles per year are .00286 and 58%, respectively. This money factor is enhanced to .00075 in California, Florida, and Washington DC. In January, Audi is providing a $1,500 owner loyalty incentive on leases of the 2008 A6. Please post any additional questions that you have about leasing an A3 in the "Audi A3 Lease Questions" discussion. Thanks.

  • I'd be happy to give you my opinion on this deal, sluurrpee. Let's see, the dealer invoice price of the car that you described is $30,442. This puts the selling price that you were quoted at around $375 over invoice, which is a very good deal. Just make sure that the dealer you are working with uses Audi Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor of .00025 to calculate your monthly payment and you're in business.

Without knowing the price of the car that you want to lease you don't know how good a price you are getting it for.

    I am planning to trade in a CLK320 while leasing an A4. I am thinking of using some of the trade-in value for cap reduction, while getting a large portion of the trade-in refund to me. I expect to take a good hit on the trade-in instead of trying to sell it myself, but would it be even a lower trade-in value? I assume that dealer loaths having to write a check.
  • I see the current MF/residual on the 2.0 CVT listed. Does anyone know what the MF/residual are on the 2.0 Quattro? And will this be the same for the special edition?

    THANKS!!

  • Need some help Car Man.

    We currently have a 2005 S4, and the lease is coming up shortly. We ABSOLUTELY love the car; however, two months ago we had a son so we are now a little short on space.

    The current debate is whether to get a 2008 S4 Avant, or a 4.2 A6.

    What I need to know are the AFS money factors on both the S4 or 4.2/A6, and residuals for what will likely become a 12,000 mile 36 month lease. I should add that a call to my local dealer suggested money factors of .0034 (8%) for the S4 Avant, and money factor of 0.0015 (3.5%) for the 4.2 A6. Given other posts, both buy-rates seem high, so I wanted to make sure my local dealer was giving me accurate information.

    Also, if leasing another Audi, are there any incentives for doing so?
  • Car Man,

    Dealer says the selling price on the A4 is 31,988 (MSRP-33,900), and the residual is 51%. Forgot to include on my earlier post that it has the ipod also.

    Looking to make a move soon. Really appreciate your help. This forum is tremendously helpful. You guys do a great service for us. Thanks.
  • Hey - can anyone offer me their thoughts on the following deal? I'm coming off a lease in a week and wanted to wait for the A4 special edition, but I was told it could be another 6 weeks. So this is what I may be able to do:

    A4 2.0 quattro (deep sea blue pearl effect / beige interior)
    Manual
    Premium package
    Ipod interface
    Heated front seats
    sport suspension

    They say that the MSRP is $34,050. The proposed lease for 36 months at 15,000 miles per year is $409/mo plus tax. As for money down, I think it's just first month and some deposit, but no cap reduction.
  • Here are the specs:

    08 A4 6MT 2.0Q
    Dolphin Grey/Black
    S-Line
    Convenience
    Titanium
    I-pod
    Heated seats
    Bluetooth

    Offering me $38,550. If you could provide the ideal lease rates for 12K/15K mi., 36 months.

    In your previous posts you stated MFs of .00025. This translates to 0.6. Did I read that right?

    Thanks for your help.
  • do you get 12k per year or 15k per year? and where is the dealership?
  • thank you car man --- appreciate you taking the time to respond

    My local Audi dealer quoted the same $3,000 increase in MSRP for 2009. I was shocked that they would raise the price so much. I was especially shocked because most of the competition (except Acura TL) has been recently redesigned and has at least 300hp. Plus, you can get a G35x loaded for less than a comparably equipped 2008 A4. I don't get their strategy here.

    PS: The dealer also denied the rumor that the next S4 would be targeted at 335i
  • gassergasser Posts: 5
    My local dealer told me that adding Audi Care (servicing) adds one "point" to the residual which effectively offsets the cost on a lease. This means you should be able to get the service for free if you choose to lease the car.
  • I was offered this on a 15K 36 Month lease of a A4 2.0T Auto Q with the premium package and heated front seats.

    MSRP 34,950
    Residual 54%
    Lease End Value 18,819
    Cap Cost $33,581.38
    MD Sales Tax $2014.88
    Money Factor .00103
    A line that reads Total Adds to Cap $937 (what is this?)
    Adjusted Cap Cost 36,533.26

    No money down, payment is $549.07

    Maybe i am off who knows, but this does not seem good at all. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
  • this does not look good at all. i leased a similar car for 455 last year with $700 down(first month + dmv fees). even mine is 12k per yr, but 15k a year should about $20 more per month. shop around....
  • just got offered $472 for the same A4 at another dealership.
  • Car_man:

    What are the money factors and residuals for the 2008 Audi A4 2.0 and 3.2 Quattro sedan (Automatic transmission for both) for January?

    Thank you

    thanksfor your help
  • I am in the market for a 2006 Audi A4 2.0 Quattro sedan and I am interested in leasing. I've never leased a used vehicle before and I am a little hesitant. What should I expect for terms on a used lease?
